Medical Clinic

The Medical Clinic provides care for many types of consultations, examinations, or treatments that a student might need, just as a family physician would provide in a student's home area.

The Medical Clinic is staffed by board certified physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and medical assistants.

Services are provided on a scheduled appointment basis, with same-day appointments available on most days. We encourage students to see the same provider whenever possible.
